, founder of the nonprofit institute, and a team of researchers there led by Clyde Hutchison III and Daniel Gibson set out to design an organism based on a core set of about 300 genes that researchers surmised a microbe would need to survive on its own.
The February 10, 2015 edition of the Wall Street Journal * featured an interview with Craig Venter
in which he provided an incredibly simple answer to the question, "What is life?" His reply was:
Institute, a leading genomics research institute, where he worked closely with JCVI's executive management to identify an architect and plan their new facility in La Jolla, CA.
Institute (JCVI), a not-for-profit scientific organization, is 0 a world leader in genomic research.
The series will include interviews with: Sir Paul McCartney - one of the most successful musicians of all time, Archbishop Desmond Tutu - anti-apartheid legend and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Munib Al Masri - billionaire Palestinian businessman and politician, Jose Ramos-Horta - hero of East Timor's struggle for independence from Indonesia, Aishwarya Rai -- Bollywood, and increasingly worldwide, icon, Marc Andreessen - Silicon Valley pioneer, co-author of Mosaic, the first widely used Internet browser, and co-founder of Netscape, Craig Venter
- biologist and entrepreneur who was one of the first scientists to sequence the human genome, Carlos Acosta - described as the most successful ballet dancer of our generation.
Institute found a protein they call "the [B.sub.12] claw." Stationed on the outside of algal cells, the protein appears to operate by binding [B.sub.12] in the ocean and helping to bring it into the cell.

. The volume begins with background chapters on scientific explanations of the origins of life, the chemical basis for life as revealed by molecular biology, and recent research on reading the genetic code and sequencing the human genome.
On 20th May 2010, Craig Venter
(father of the Human Genome Project) reported the design, synthesis and assembly of the 1.08-Mbp Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn 1.0 (JVC are Craig Venter
To do so mythologizes their human subject (Rejeski) just as surely as Craig Venter
's analogies serve, in the view of these authors, to tell us a fairy story about synthetic biology.
Institute played a major role in that and in producing the first synthetic bacterial cell last May.
announced that he and his colleagues had created what might be called the first "synthetic organism."

"We are pleased to work in collaboration with Craig Venter
and SGVI to study and develop this promising and important new synthetic genomics technology.
Institute had created a synthetic life form brought a fresh round of delight, concern, and puzzlement about the march of biotechnology.
